republican critics and answer questions about the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. rice will sit down with senators john mccain, lindsey graham, and kelly ayott. in recent days, senator mccain has softened his criticism as rice insists that she was relying on talking points from the intelligence community. last night, senator graham rejecting her defense but says he's open to today's meeting. >> she asked to meet with us and now we'll listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi. the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11th. when you look at the history and the reporting coming out of libya about the dangers, it should never have been open or heavily reinforced. after the attack, i think the story we were told about a spontaneous event caused by video where a mob turned into a riot is less credible than ever. >> she reportedly called the meeting. seems like a smart move. what do you think? >> well, i think it's a smart move for john mccain to take the meeting. they're boxed in. this is not a figh

, they see ambivalence in the u.s. foreign policy and they don't see any particular reason to stop. we have tightened the sanctions, based on what was done in congress and the administration and those are starting to bite. but i wish we had gone to sanctions, these kines of very punishing sanctions a bit earlier, maybe we might see results by now. >> i am going to take a break but i am going to bring you back after that break because i would like to ask you about what happened in benghazi. some have suggested that history is repeating itself. 1979, to 2012, both years we saw an ambationz dormurderred. i would like to get your thoughts on that. quick commercial break and we'll be right back. ♪ [ male announcer ] it started long ago. the joy of giving something everything you've got. it takes passion. and it's not letting up anytime soon. at unitedhealthcare insurance company, we understand that commitment. and always have. so does aarp, an organization serving the needs of americans 50 and over for generations. so it's no surprise millions have chosen an aarp medicare supplement insurance

says he sees the u.s. heading in the direction of greece, is that a real probability? >> i think there's still something of a gap between the u.s. and greece, but we have been, for a long, long time, we have been very, very worried about the deficit, about the buildup of debt in america. to compare it to greece is quite an extraordinary one. if you go to greece, you wander around athens, you have the threat of ethnic violence. i think all presidential candidates are allowed a degree of hyperbole, but i think on that particular question he's got a long way. >> other nations are looking forward to this election because they're thinking about the trade opportunities, they're looking at the promotion of peace, they're looking for opportunities of diplomacy. but is there more at stake in this election, 2012, that we didn't see in 2008? >> i think there probably is from a realistic stand. one one, it's very close. two, with romney we don't know exactly what sort of foreign policy he would follow. the romney of the most recent debates was saying very different things than what was being said
. i think tim cain's going to be elected to the u.s. senate, and a lot of it on these issues, on the doors knocking on doors and on phone banks today women are saying i can't believe this is a guy running for president who doesn't know where he is on equal pay, wants to get rid of birth control coverage in insurance plans and wants to get road of planned parenthood. every woman in america knows what that means. mitt romney may not know, but women do. >> stephanie: i'm reading a piece, because we're so focused on the presidential, but there's a lot going on particularly with female candidates and particularly in the senate. it looks like the odds are the democrats are going to retain the senate, right. >> caller: yes, and there are so many women running for the senate this time. we really stand to have a record number of women join the senate, so, you know, in a number of battleground states, as well. baldwin, it's exciting, doing really, really well in wisconsin. the list goes on. >> stephanie: it's interesting that you almost one talk about the war against women you almost c
a chance to turn the u.s. around and i believe he is genuine. thank you. host: the next caller from new york on the democratic line. caller: thanks for taking my call. that last call was interesting to me because it seems romney's solution is a big huge tax cut for the wealthy in this country. president obama came in with the bush recession and he's put the stimulus in place and he has put in many other policies that have helped this country stabilize and created 5 million jobs. and what will mitt romney do? cut taxes. that's not a solution. mitt romney has no credibility on domestic policy or international policy. if you're solution for everything that ails us is tax cuts, that's not going to work. look at the bush tax cuts from 04. in the debate, he agreed with president obama on 95% of everything and when he tried to get president obama on libya, he failed. he has no credibility. he will say anything to win and i think that's why president obama will prevail on november 7 because he deserves reelection. he's a great president. host: we can see mitt romney talking to supporters there
you know he wasn't the first? in fact, four u.s. presidents have been elected to office without winning the popular votes all in tight races like the one decide this had week, could it all happen again? presidential historian joins us with perspective, good morning to you, nick. >> good morning, gretchen. >> this just happened 12 years ago and many people have been speculating that president obama might win electorally, but mitt romney might win the popular vote. how do you see it? >> well, it's sort of becoming a trend as you mentioned, it happened 12 years ago and three other times in history and it could very well happen again. we see that mitt romney in a lot of the polls is leading, and we've seen other polls, obama is leading and depends where the electoral college, those eight swing states that people are talking about, ohio, new hampshire, virginia, others, depends what happens in those states. amazingly enough this election has turned into an election for about eight states. >> gretchen: and some people are upset about that and gins up the discussion, whether or not the
behind such a wide swath of destruction how will the devastation effect the already fragile u.s. housing market? >> brian: let's ask ceo of sharpen institute. alex, what short-term for the housing market that many people believe was on its way back? >> the housing market has been on its way back. we have three things that are going to change in the short-term. one of the things affected in the northeast is of course there is just not enough houses. we have a 50 year low of inventory right now. so where we were seeing a recovery, we're now going to see some struggle just due to the incredible damage. this is the second costliest hurricane in the history of the united states. so, when you look at the numbers, $50 billion in damage, it's going to take a while for the northeast to recover. overall, however, the housing market in the u.s. is strong due to investors and banks finally moving through distressed inventory. short-term we will see an effect. long term this shouldn't effect the entire housing market. >> steve: short-term you are talking about the next three to six months. all right.
motors after the 1960s, the u.s. army after world war ii, the republican party has been slow to change to a new reality because what it used to do used to work so well and it's so difficult to admit it doesn't work anymore and hasn't been working for a long time. >> is it just because there aren't the percentage of white people in the population is diminishing? >> no, it is not about that. it's not about the latino vote only. it's about the american middle class. it's that the republican party developed in the 1970s a series of very powerful answers to the problems of low productivity and high inflation and the soviet challenge, and now in the 21st century in all of those problems have been solved and we have new problems of inequality, high health care cost and the chinese challenge, they are offering still the same ideas that worked against completely different problems. it's like giving antibiotics to somebody who is suffering from mental depression. >> i was watching this whole thing that's going to go on, congress marn, congratulations on getting re-elected. hannitys a one view, w
old, i just became a u.s. citizen this year and must say i was so proud to have the privilege to vote. i started crying as i was walking away from the polls. just whoever whelmed with emotions. #voteordie. and speaking of the youth vote, despite the fact that unemployment for those between 18 and 29 was up 12% in the month of october, by 61% of young voters still favor president obama. there was some concern about an enthusiasm gap because in 2008, 78% of young people said they were very enthusiastic about the president but only 48% said so this time around. so it will be very interesting to see if they actually turned out. >> actually go and vote. >> right. >> that is the big question. they turned out at about the same rate as those four years ago. josh elliott. you have people gathering around. >> the anticipation is starting to build, people milling about and seeing on the giant screen surrounding us here in times square turning it into a virtual amphitheater. the votes coming in. as we project states, the excitement starting to build and i want to bring in first-time voters. we ar
. >> the u.s. senate. >> it could affect the senate race in connecticut. really, these are states where president obama should be able to win with a large margin. one state where the media market bleeds into is pennsylvania. so much in new jersey was hit by the hurricane. the president's visit there with chris yisty. a lot of people saw that on tv were in pennsylvania and key media markets there. if that race is competitive, that may help. >> how much do you think it affects the total popular vote, the number of popular vote? how much might that mean for president obama? >> i see 300,000 people may not show up for the polls. >> you've been spending all this time waiting for gasoline. you don't know where your polling place is. >> which you've been doing. you think about all that time waiting in line for the basic necessities of life, it makes you a little less enthusiastic about going out and trying to figure out where you're going to vote. people are just trying to get warm right now. >> you also see why it's important for a governor to have the authority to be able to make changes. go
raise something eyebrows suggesting that the u.s. armed forces are biased -- their racist, they are sexist and they are homophobic, but less so they they used to be. here is the exact quote. one of the things the decider in chief has to do is decide whether to bring this country together against all its diversity or let it drift apart. look how many much stronger the american military is because it's less racist, less sexist and less homophobic and we are just looking for people who can do the job. ambassador john bolton is with us. you have the former president saying they are less so today but the u.s. military is racist, sexist and homophobic. your thoughts. >> i think you start with the english language which president clinton is said to be pretty good at. he has to be saying as you just indicated that it may be better. but still the starting point is racist, sexist and homophobic. i think that illustrates the chasm in the view in this country between president obama and his best spokesman, president clinton on the one hand and governor romney on the other. of course t
and 47 republicans. one-third of the u.s. senate is up for election tonight. that's 33 seats. 23 democratic and ten republican. in order for the republicans to take control of the senate, they would need to win four seats. that bat logical take place in about a dozen states from places like connecticut and massachusetts out east to nevada and arizona out west. cbs news considers six of these states true tossups. that's massachusetts, connecticut, virginia, wisconsin, north dakota, and montana. republicans have what they're calling their big four. that's montana, north dakota, nebraska and wisconsin. republicans tell us in order for them to win the senate they have to win the majority of the big four. the polls have closed. we're going to take a closer look in virginia where the polls have closed at the senate race there. there's a contest between two former popular governors. you have republican george allen, the former u.s. senator from that state and democrat tim kaine, the former head of the democratic national committee. this is a very tight race. it's also the most expensive

, especially early in the evening. now, the questions like, is the u.s. economy getting better or worse? and who can better handle the economy, president obama or governor romney. now, we know that the economy is a key priority for almost every voter. so we're going to dig deeper behind that question and ask, what's the biggest economic issue for you? is it unemployment, is it taxes, tax reform perhaps, rising prices? we're also going to try to figure out if there was a quality or a trait that motivated that voter, was it the candidate's leadership qualities, empathy, perhaps, vision for the country, or strong values? now, we know that the answers to these questions are going to give us sort of a map. they will tell us something about where the night on tuesday night may actually be headed and then later in the evening, when we start making calls in the congressional races we're going to keep a running tally of how the numbers are adding up in the house and senate races. so right now, you've got democrats holding the senate, 51-47 with two independents. there are nine basically tossup s

. the u.s. congressional delegation and the state house assembly. so the fact is republicans control the government at all levels by big numbers. and i think that this election is going to be much more like 2010 than 2008. i think governor romney's going to carry pennsylvania. >> ron brownstein you agree with that? >> the big question is as you come down to the very end, where republicans are viewing this, is this electorate going to be like the electorate in 2010. racial distribution, partisan distribution, in it's ideological distribution? 2010 was more white, more republican and more conservative. southwest pennsylvania is going to be very tough for president obama. the white working-class voters there are going to move sharply away from him. but what pat toomey did in 2010 was cut the margin in the poor suburban counties outside of philadelphia to only 20,000 vote deficit. in 2008 barack obama won those same counties by 200,000 votes. the question is whether the social issues that are partient in for romney with white collar, white voters, particularly women are going to be a bar
